Chimay Tripel, with its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer’s flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.
Ingredients: Water, malted barley, wheat starch, sugar, hop extract and yeast. See Protz (beer-pages.com/protz/features/chimay.htm) and John White (www.whitebeertravels.co.uk/chimay.html)

This tasted like a New Belgium Trippel with extra hops. It was a VERY similar taste as I had them both at the same time. The Chimay just had more hop edge to it. Very enjoyable beer. I look forward to getting some more of this.

750ml bottle 8/28/14 (Meijer)-48° in Trappist Glass-Pours a clear golden with a one finger white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, and citrus. Taste of the same with some bitterness. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and is quite smooth. Rating #3300

Poured from 0,33 L bottle. Mild aroma of citrus. Cloudy golden in appearance, with white head. Light bitter taste. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Overall an excellent abbey tripel.

Dark yellow hazy body with a small fluffy white head. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of yeast smell. Sweet banana yeast taste. Reminds me of a strong tasting American wheat beer. Really good.

33cl flesje via AH Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in La Trappe glas Het nieuwe etiket ipv de volledige gele Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig met mooie witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: banaan, zoet, gistig, bittere nasmaak Conclusie: zeer bekende trappist. Vaker gehad en soms staat het me tegen. 1e keer beoordeeld met 2,5 totaal, maar dat is te laag. Nu vaker beoordeeld en deze tripel is wel degelijk lekker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

God trappist ale fra Chimay. Flott farge nydelig skum. God maltsødme hvor alkoholen er godt gjemt 8 %. Trekker litt ned for at den er kort i smaken.

Coloração âmbar clara. Espuma bege, média consistência, muito duradoura. Aroma frutado sem exagero. Paladar cítrico, frutado, com picância e lúpulo bem evidentes, mas com amargor discreto. Retrogosto do lúpulo persistente e duradouro. Bom corpo e álcool perceptível. No geral uma tripel lupulada e menos maltada, que agrada.

Flaske 0,33 liter. Det første man bemærker ved denne øl er aromaen, som man bliver overvældet af når man åbner flasken, den er pænt kraftig, den er heldigvis mere mild i smagen end hvad man lige tror, super lækker øl med god konsistens.

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a thick white head that lasts until the final sip. I was expecting this to be more fruity, but it's still a great tripel - complex fruity notes with overtones of yeast and hops. Not my favourite tripel, but quite tasty.
